    Yep, Yeo Valley def makes a thicker yoghurt.

    Try draining it and making the Boursin cheese that I made, it is lovely.

    Mmm, I like my yoghurt! I put some vanilla essence in it as it was setting, and it's made a really lovely mild sweet flavour, and Greek texture.

    Can't wait to make some more later, using the Yeo Valley!

    Thank you so much for your advice!

    I was very happy when I unwrapped my slow cooker this morning: nearly a litre of thick, velvety yoghurt was waiting for me! It didn't need draining and it was so smooth. Very happy

    I certainly won't be buying any more yoghurt - and that's coming from someone who'd happily spend 10 on expensive Onken throughout the week.

    So thanks again - I will certainly be spreading the word.

    I HAVE MADE YOGHURT!!!! Haven't tasted it yet as it's cooling off in the fridge at the moment, but it looked SO nice! Can;t wait to give it a try and I've also scooped out a batch, put it in a cotton teatowel so that it can drain and I'm planning to make Boursin... what a fab start of Tuesday

    That's great, glad that it turned out ok.

    I have just made my second batch using a starter from the first one that I made and it is lovely and creamy.

    I like mine really thick though so it has been draining for 2 hrs and there is still a bit of whey coming out of it.

    Sitting here eating some of the Boursin style spread on wholemeal bread for lunch, lovely!

    Yeh!

    Just wait until you taste it, then you will be impressed.

    I put mine in the fridge after 8 hours when it has set. You can leave it longer, the longer you leave it the more tart it becomes so 8 hours is mild, about 10 to 12 would be tart, or so I have read.

    I like mine mild so that it tastes like cream when it is thicker.

    I guess you will have to stock up on more UHT milk now Mirjam.

    Try a cotton handkerchief, that works really welll and it is small enough to gather the corners up, tie together using a sandwich bag tie and just sit on top of the yog.

    You may find that a tea towel may be a bit too big.

    I've got another 4L of UHT milk left so I can make 2 more large batches. I don't have any cotton hankies hence the tea towel.. it's big but not big enough to lie in the colander in the fridge

    I've tasted a little bit and it tastes quite tangy but that's the way I like it. Can't wait to taste some more!

    That must be because you left it for longer than mine Mirjam, I think it was going to be ready at 3am wasn't it?

    That just shows that the longer you leave it the more tart / tangy it gets.

    Take a look at this link, it says you can lose belly fat by eating more yoghurt, I think I may be on the way as I can't stop eating the stuff!

    I have just had some for my sweet with a sugar free jelly, mmmmm!

    I read that some people add jam for flavouring and one person mentioned adding Options Chocolate Drink powder, oh and someone somewhere said they add a packet of Angel Delight to the milk before they put it in the sc.

    No good for some of us but and idea maybe for the rest of the family.

    I made a batch last night but instead of leaving it for 8 to 10 hours as I normally do, I thought I would leave it for longer to see what the difference was.

    I left it for 14 hours and it had more of a tang, not too tangy but I def prefer the one left for a shorter time, it tastes a lot creamier.

    Mine was ready at 2am but left it until the next morning and it tastes really nice! Made some more yesterday and have on in the sc as we speak as I need to stock up on yoghurt cos I'm starting a new job on Monday and can't make it during the day anymore. Strained the batch I made yesterday and it's soooooooooo nice, thick and creamy! Took it out after 8 hours setting and although it tastes tangy, it's not an overpowering taste. Will be busy making 2 more batches (one tomorrow and one Sunday). I've flavoured mine with splenda and cinnamon and it tastes divine! Not the whole batch of course, just the portion I had this morning
